Father Tad was recently appointed to the National Institutes of Health Human Fetal Tissue Research Ethics Advisory Board. This is a Federal Advisory Committee that advises, consults with, and makes recommendations to the Secretary of HHS regarding the ethics of research involving human fetal tissue proposed in competitive NIH grant and cooperative agreement applications. Recommendations will address whether the Secretary should withhold funds or not withhold funds from a proposed project because of ethical considerations. The first full day meeting was held July 31, 2020.
We are proud of him and know he will bring the voice of reason and the light of Christ to a very emotionally charged topic...human life.
